Course Description

This course examines African American music as a discourse of identity and advocacy, an index of race relations and a product of mass consumption and technological change. Through contemporary and historical examples, students will gain critical skills as listeners, thinkers and communicators; a deeper knowledge of the social and market contexts of poplar music; and consider how media technology empowers and affects local, minority and global cultures.
